I love recipes like that. The kind that you can quickly toss together and one that everyone loves.

I served this broccoli slaw the other evening with my grilled chicken legs. The crunch from the slaw and the flavor from the dressing I made went perfectly with the grilled chicken. But, this slaw recipe goes well with so many dishes. It is definitely one of my favorite go-to recipes.

I used a prepared broccoli slaw from the salad section of my grocery store as my based and then added a bit of onion and mixed it all together with my dressing.

From start to finish, I had this slaw made in less than 10 minutes.

I don’t know about you, but when a slaw recipe tastes that great and can be thrown together in a jiffy, I call it a keeper for sure!

  1. Perfect touch to go with the grilled chicken!

  2. I love this recipe! I buy the bags of broccoli slaw but never do anything creative with them.

  3. Well I never. What a GREAT idea! Love that addition of broccoli!

  4. So funny story about slaw and me…I was a few weeks pregnant and we told no one. I went to a neighbors party and she served some sort of slaw, I made a plate and took one bite and nearly lost my lunch. To this day I can not eat slaw of any kind. Not that you asked or anything, I am sure this is a lovely side.

  5. Why is 1/2 of a chopped red onion mentioned twice in the ingredient list?

  6. Just pinned this recipe for my hubby. He loves broccoli slaw, and this sounds like one I would really enjoy! Thanks Robyn….have a great weekend!

  7. What a great side to have on hand for any grilling dish. OR a great snack. 😉

  8. pinned this– reminds me of summer BBQs!

  9. Can lemon juice be used in place of lime?

  11. I love the bags of brocoli salad. So convenient and good! I add diced apple, walnuts and raisins to my slaw. I am going to try your dressing recipe. Sounds easy and delish! I am serving the slaw with Sweet Baby Ray’s crock pot chicken which I have added chunks of pineapple and red & green peppers to. Can’t wait to try it all tomorrow evening!

  13. Broccoli slaw is one of my favourites! and if you are on a budget, get yourself a mini chopper (about ten dollars) and shred it fresh at about 1/3 the cost. A great way to use up broccoli and cauliflower stems.

  15. I’m a stay at home dad, chef, maid, nanny, etc. I like to make my wife low calorie, low cholesterol dishes as much as possible. Question: How important is the sugar in the dressing? Can I skip it and not ruin the recipe?

    • Hi Pat,
      It just adds a bit of sweetness to the recipe. If you’d prefer, you could try it with raw honey instead.

    • I added a bit of EVO as it is so heart-healthy. We should all try to get a few tablespoons each day, and substitute it for most other oils. One reason to use lower-fat mayo (or make your own) is you have created “room” in the calories and fat to add EVO. Had a bit of green cabbage, so sliced that thin and added it too. As a nutrition scientist and college professor who tries to avoid refined carbs, I can say that the added sugar is an inconsequential amount per serving, and it usefully tempers the other acidic flavors. Feel free to add green or red/orange peppers. Healthy way to feed that coleslaw hunger! Should bad great on a burger or (dare I say) a hotdog? All things in moderation.

  16. I love different slaw recipes. This sounds like a good one. You know I’m pinning it!

  18. I love this recipe and added bleu cheese and dried cranberries. Delish!

  19. Much to bland for my taste. 🙁

  20. Can you use coleslaw instead?

  21. We are having about 25 ppl at our house this weekend for a house warming party. Do you think I should double this recipe?

  22. We made this for the 4th of July. It was a huge hit and even better the next day! We left out the sugar, used coconut vingar instead of Apple cider vinegar, and cilantro instead of parsley. We added red bell pepper, bacon, and toasted pecans. Yummy. Thanks for the recipe!

  23. Just made this and added sliced pealed apples. Used Rice Wine Vinegar and mayo, and omitted the lime juice. Otherwise, the same recipe and it worked! I’d make it again. Good!

  24. Love this recipe. My husband said – make sure you keep this recipe! The apple cider vinegar gave a nice fruity, tart taste. Will definitely make it again!

  25. I ADD FRESH BLUEBERRIES AND DRIED CRANBERIES – ITS WONDERFUL!

  26. Just “made” this (if you can call it that, haha). It’s very good! I like that it has a hint of lime juice.

  27. I found the vinegar way too strong in this recipe.

  28. I made the recipe exactly as called for and it was way too tart to eat . I will try it again and this time the omit vinegar and cut the amount of lime in half.

  29. I didn’t have broccoli slaw in the fridge, so used cabbage slaw, shredded carrots, and broccoli heads chopped small. My husband likes his slaw to be more vinegar than mayo, so I added more vinegar. I also added dried cranberries. Yum!!!! i think the lemon juice gives this a really nice zing. Will make again.

  30. What are ingredients of ‘broccoli slaw ” in packet ?????

    • I would also like to know what broccoli slaw in a Bag has in it. I have a big head of cabbage in my refrig I would like to add to touch use for this salad

      • Broccoli slaw usually has broccoli, green cabbage, red cabbage and carrots. Some may vary, but this is pretty standard for the ones I usually buy.
        Hope you enjoy the recipe! Thanks so much! xo

  31. Added some dried cranberries and sesame and pumpkin seeds. Great tasting and quick and easy

  32. I made this ahead of dinner to go with fried catfish.  OMG!  I could have eaten the whole bowl while I was making it….  I added dried cranberries and sliced almonds just because I had them.  The flavors are excellent.  Now I can’t wait for dinner.  I will make this as my go to Cole Slaw recipe from now on.  

  33. Gotta add celery seed to this just like with coleslaw. tastes so much better
